Binary packages built by this source

libcgi-fast-perl: CGI::Fast Perl module

 CGI::Fast is a subclass of the CGI object created by CGI.pm. It is
 specialized to work well with the Open Market FastCGI standard, which
 greatly speeds up CGI scripts by turning them into persistently running
 server processes. Scripts that perform time-consuming initialization
 processes, such as loading large modules or opening persistent database
 connections, will see large performance improvements.

libperl-dev: Perl library: development files

 Files for developing applications which embed a Perl interpreter.

libperl5.14: shared Perl library

 This package is required by programs which embed a Perl interpreter to
 ensure that the correct version of `perl-base' is installed. It
 additionally contains the shared Perl library on architectures where the
 perl binary is linked to libperl.a (currently only i386, for performance
 reasons). In other cases the actual library is in the `perl-base' package.

perl: Larry Wall's Practical Extraction and Report Language

 An interpreted scripting language, known among some as "Unix's Swiss
 Army Chainsaw".
 Perl is optimised for scanning arbitrary text files and system
 administration. It has built-in extended regular expression matching
 and replacement, a data-flow mechanism to improve security with
 setuid scripts and is extensible via modules that can interface to C

perl-base: minimal Perl system

 Perl is a scripting language used in many system scripts and utilities.
 This package provides a Perl interpreter and the small subset of the
 standard run-time library required to perform basic tasks. For a full
 Perl installation, install "perl" (and its dependencies, "perl-modules"
 and "perl-doc").

perl-debug: debug-enabled Perl interpreter

 debugperl provides a debug-enabled version of Perl which can produce
 extensive information about the interpreter as it compiles and executes
 a program (see the -D switch in perlrun(1)).
 Note that this package is primarily of use in debugging *Perl* rather
 than perl programs, which may be traced/debugged using the standard
 perl binary using the -d switch (see perldebug(1)).

perl-doc: Perl documentation

 Perl manual pages, POD documentation and the `perldoc' program. If you are
 writing Perl programs, you almost certainly need this.

perl-modules: Core Perl modules

 Architecture independent Perl modules. These modules are part of Perl and
 required if the `perl' package is installed.
 Note that this package only exists to save archive space and should be
 considered an internal implementation detail of the `perl' package.
 Other packages should not depend on `perl-modules' directly, they
 should use `perl' (which depends on `perl-modules') instead.
